Multiple versions of wxWidget on Linux

Post by armel » Thu Oct 07, 2004 9:40 am


I could not figure where to ask this so here is my question:

I want to install wxGTK as unicode 'release' and unicode 'debug' on the same linux box. However making "make install" overwrite some files (wx-config).
I also want to make console only stuff.
Should I still simply do make install ??? and then twick my makefiles so that they call wx-config-gtk2u... (or something like that) or is there a better way ?

(I'm not a makefile geek :(... how can i choose one wx-config-?? or another by simply specifying the target as : release / debug)

Please help
Best regards

I asked this question a while ago as well (as for debug and release versions). I think wx-config is actually a soft link to another configure script. So when you build different versions of wxWidgets, you can simply ln the wx-config to change configs.
